    Today at GDC we sat down with developer Oh So Shiny to look at their first iOS game Riff the Robot. The premise is pretty wacky: You're a mad scientist who has "lost his marbles" over the years, so you build a time-travelling robot to go back in time and…

  • GDC 2015: 'Golden Tee' Is Coming to the App Store

    3 March 2015, 1:52 pm by: Eli Hodapp
